Stieg Larsson’s new book THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST [2] will be released on May 25. If you are interested in checking it out, here is the synopsis of the book and some selected reviews so you can get an idea of what to expect. (warning Spoilers abound if you haven’t read the previous two books)

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest Synopsis: Lisbeth Salander-the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels-lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge-against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back.

Scandinavian BooksWhen The Girl Who Played with Fire ended, the fiery Lisbeth Salander was suspended between life and death. It is probably not exactly a spoiler to revel that she survived. Both the tattooed hacker and the Russian gangster who tried to end her life are in the same hospital, Sahlgrenska hospital, just a few rooms apart. Read More [4]
